Project Description

AUSTIN, TX

This “Hill Country Tuscan” embodies old-world Tuscan architecture and Hill Country design. Beauty was created with the interaction of space and materials, from stone walls and twelve-foot ceilings to antique heart pine flooring. The house is energy-efficient, with twelve-inch walls and openings carefully oriented to minimize solar heat gain and to maximize natural ventilation. The free-standing tower, which houses an office, is connected to both the entry pavilion and the garage/workshop. Access throughout the property is a processional path connected by a covered walkway spanning between the entry pavilion and the front door.
